Limited edition Blu-ray release of Sarah Pucill’s acclaimed artists’ feature film Confessions to the Mirror in which she extends the study she began in her previous film Magic Mirror (2013) responding to Surrealist artist Claude Cahun’s writing and photographs through tableaux vivants that re-stage her images and words.


“In Confessions to the Mirror Sarah Pucill continues her mesmerizing conversation with Claude Cahun, which began in her film Magic Mirror (2013). Inspired by Cahun’s photographs, Pucill composes prodigious tableau vivants that she interweaves with Cahun’s writing, upon which a multi-vocal filmic space is created. Out of this, she offers not only a poetic and personal reading of Cahun’s work, but her extraordinary aesthetic provides a space where Cahun’s voice-vision lives on through and with Pucill’s eye.” Dr Katja Gorska, author, L’Objet garde et livre son secret. Claude Cahun’s Poetry of the Object (2020, transcript Verlag).
